Good for you, CBS! I pray your are the broadcaster who can revive daytime dramas with one or two new programs some day. Oh, how I still miss ATWT and GL! I am pleased the Eye embraces the genre and the daypart with a solid ad campaign!

I’m glad they do things to promote their soaps.

I have never watched daytime tv… I can’t think of anything more dreadful lol ..
I was in an accident hospitalized..
my woman roomie watched Y&R and GH everyday and explained the players to me etc and I got hooked.
after release I watched both soaps on-line..

I do not want to see Nick with Chelsea, but I also do not want him to reunite with Sharon for the millionth time. Why don’t they mix it up a little? Stop with the repeat cycle and try Hillary out with Nick? Ravi should be romantically linked to Mariah, not Ashely–those two do not fit. Billy and Victoria also need to stop with the repeat cycle and find love else where.

Addison, I agree with what you wrote about Nick and Chelsea-boring and zero chemistry. Ravi and Mariah, ugh, that would give Mariah even more air-time and I find the actress/character to be really obnoxious. I love Ashley and agree that she has zero chemistry with Ravi-just ridiculous that someone like Ashley would be so protective of her employee. I could do without the train wreck of Billy’s life and Victoria-the actress has no chemistry with anyone, IMO & seriously, does she need to continue to remind two grown men that she is “the boss.” Give me a break.

Daytime is about the drama(s). Lose the game shows and talkies .

OMG! Someone got paid to make that promo and those stars actually said yes to be in it?!!

these poor performers….what a dumb and lame ass promo…..I’m Down that this gets pulled and never shown again….OMG CBS WTF!!!!!!!!!!


I love that commercial. Nice to see the network letting viewers know that there are still stars to watch during the day. Maybe not as big as Denzel or Julia but they’re still big names worth seeing every day.

Ratings are DOWN!


I do not understand why the ratings are down for Y&R. I do not fast forward through any of Y&R and today’s show (2/14-17) was pitch perfect. I loved Ashely thinking back about her father which was served up to us with flashbacks.
Jack is back to acting like ole smiling Jack and that’s good to see.
I have to amend my earlier post in which I said that I didn’t think Ashely and Rave fit. Today, those two won me over–Ravi is incredibly sweet and Ashely could use a little of that in her life right now. I also loved the flashbacks of Ashely and her father–fans love flashbacks which are older than a few monts! Victoria has turned into a shrew and Billy is trying to get her to become more self aware. This presents an interesting dynamic. Today, Jill locked a naked Colin out of the house and for a seventy-one year old man, I must say Tristan Rogers has a very nice physique.
I feel Y&R is getting it right and it is reminding me of what made me get hooked on soaps in the first place.


‘Tracker’ Star Justin Hartley Reveals Melissa Roxburgh to Debut as His On-Screen Sister

Justin Hartley took to his Instagram this week, and introduced the latest cast member to his hit freshman drama, Tracker on CBS.

The former Y&R star where he played Adam Newman, now plays Colter Shaw on Tracker and in a few weeks time on the May 5th episode, viewers will be introduced to Colter’s sister, Dory.

Actress Melissa Roxburgh takes on the key role. Roxburgh is most-known for his role in Manifest. She has also appeared on Quantum Leap and Supernatural to name just a few of her other TV credits.

In the episode entitled, “Beyond the Campus Walls”, the CBS series previews, “When a grad student goes missing after a house party, his friends and family believe he buckled under the pressure of his research grant. But, after consulting with his sister Dr. Dory Shaw (Roxburgh)— a professor at the school — Colter discovers a trail of explicit photos and messages that lead him to uncover a dangerous (and deadly) conspiracy on campus.”

Hartley’s post shared, “Colter finally reunites with his little sister Dory in the coming weeks. Join me in welcoming the lovely and talented @MRoxburgh to the @TrackerCBS family!”

The story of Colter Shaw’s family is a throughline throughout Tracker. We know from flashbacks, that Colter, Dory and their brother Russell had a not-conventional upbringing. Their parents Ashton and Mary were professors at Berkeley until something happened to Ashton. When his paranoia gets the best of him he leaves his family, but Russell went after him, and then later on Ashton is found dead, where all indications look like Russell pushed him.  Now in 2024, Russell contacted Colter telling him there is something he “needs to know.” However, Colter’s mom, Mary did not want her son engaging with Russell in any conversation and that was back earlier in the season after the second episode.

Intrigued to see Melissa Roxburgh plays Justin Hartley’s sister on ‘Tracker’? Comment below.

B&B’s Sean Kanan, Heather Tom and Lawrence Saint-Victor All Had Creative Hand in Sheila’s ‘Ten Toe’ Reveal

Bringing it from the page to the stage is the actor’s job on any theatre, television or motion picture project. In the case of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap MVP, Sean Kanan, has been delivering some powerful performances as Deacon has become increasingly freaked out and obsessed with the fact, that in the crematorium, he saw that “Sheila’s” (Kimberlin Brown) body had ten toes, not nine.

Deacon now believes Sheila might be alive somewhere (given she only has 9 toes), and especially after seeing the communications between Sugar and Sheila on her laptop.

Then, on Monday’s April 15th episode of the CBS daytime drama series, Deacon says to himself (as he pours himself a drink), “Maybe Finn’s right. Maybe I’m losing it.” He flashes back to the crematorium, saying “Sheila had nine toes, but I saw ten on those feet.” He then utters, “Why Sheila? Why did you go to Steffy’s that night? And who the hell is sugar?”

While Kanan has played the only guy in town who thinks something is off here, he was ably assisted by two of his castmates. First, six-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Heather Tom (Katie) directed the episode where it was revealed that the woman’s body in the crematorium had ten toes.

Second, Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), wrote that ‘ten toe’ reveal episode, and he took to Kanan’s instagram and expressed, “I had a lot of fun writing this episode. (Sean Kanan) killed it!!!!”

Coming up later this week, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) is back from Genoa City and The Young and the Restless and gets into a heated conversation about Sheila with Deacon. Stay tuned.

So, what do you think of Sean, Heather and Lawrence all using their creative talents to make the ‘ten toe’ reveal come to life? Comment below.
